  4. Solar lanterns replace kerosene killers in Africa - The Science Show - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Kerosene lanterns are used for lighting across Africa. They result in poor health outcomes and loss of life due to accidents. An alternative is the cheap, highly efficient solar lantern. They provide better light, and remove the poor health outcomes of kerosene lamps. Jeremy Leggett describes a new model for aid where crowdfunding allows capital to be sourced to fund manufacture and distribution of lamps to poor people in Africa. Following early success, there is an ambitious plan to see the end of kerosene lamps by 2020.
